We went there based on the reviews from TripAdvisor but unfortunately it didn’t meet our expectations on very good and excellent. The restaurant has a nice ambience. But the food nothing special. As starter we had some salad which was fine and then grilled beef...More

Our daughter and I visited this lovely restaurant with her Dutch friend and their parents, it's off the beaten track but worth seeking out. The food was delicious, especially the desserts. The prices were reasonable for Amsterdam. I had the satay pork from the specials...More

Highly tasty, refined and varied foods. You'll find yourself ordering 3 courses easily as all are very well portioned (as in: you need not fear huge heaps of food in one go). Service is friendly and usually adequate, tho I agree with other reviewers here...More

De Knijp is one of those places where the food is always decent. Prices are a bit high but understandable seeing its location around the corner of the Museumsquare. Being able to have a late dinner after a show at the Concertbuilding (kitchen open till...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
